1. Actually, as of right now, I kind of like your nicknames for them. 2. Parish in Talossan is "pleiv". Well, L'Oversteier says pleiv is a "congregation (church), parish", so more like a Catholic parish than, say, a Louisiana parish, which is basically just a county (cuntat in Talossan.) These are very small areas. Why not call them districts? (Four words for district come up on L'Oversteier, only two of which, I think, fit our purposes..."distriteu" and "zistritz".) Or, we could call them "quarters", as in the quarter of a town - "cartieir" in Talossan. (Even tho there are six of them. That's quirky, right?) I suppose we don't even have to give "parish" a Talossan name, we could just make up something. I dunno. 3. I don't know about this one. Sort of used to Mazzini and Garibaldi.

Oh! I have a good one. Venice has sestieri (sing. sestiere), meaning "one-sixths divisions" in an analogous way to the term "quarters".
Perhaps we could Talossanize "sestiere" ("sextieir(s)"?); "sixth" is "sexlaiset" or "sextéu". Sir C. M. Siervicül , come to our help!
Oooh.... I really like this idea, Talossanizing an Italian concept.
If we wanted to take that a step further, we could do it with Garibaldi and Mazzini. Evidently, Garibaldi is derived from a Germanic term combining "lance" and "courage." So... " lança" and "curatx" or "tartxast." So Garibaldi could become "Lançacuratix" Mazzini, from "tool or mace maker" could be something like "Veldisprotfraicheir" or "Utulfaçarh."
I'm most likely not getting it right on. But it would offer some options if we wanted to go in that direction.
V: If one takes issue with the current Covenants - I would support a rewrite to clean them up.

V: But that said, this argument that if we adopted the new Org Law and the Covenants, it would be inorganic is lost when we consider that by adopting the new org law, we relinquish the shackles of the old Org Law.

Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: You have some good points. To be sure, the longevity and tradition of the OrgLaw make it (and us) stand out from other, similar, places. But your argument here in this thread basically boils down to "it's too cumbersome." And that's not true.
Feb 10, 2019 20:02:08 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: The new proposal is just as cumbersome and complicated, except where it has omissions that will need to be remedied. Even leaving aside the fatal flaws, it's not an improvement in this way, except for the lack of "holes."

Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: Ultimately, the same amount of effort spent amending the current OrgLaw would have had equal or superior effect to coming up with a new system of government, plus it wouldn't have trashed the old one to which we swore an oath.

Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: And finally, the entire process is being performed by the legislative process as normal, which means it is part of that process. Elevating new supreme documents so easily should not be possible, since that is dangerous and ill-conceived.

V: Not really - in effect- we're amending the prior org law by repealing all aspects of it and passing adopting new sections. So yoi can keep your longevity.

Ian Plätschisch: Yeah, the whole reason we aren't calling it "The 2019 Organic Law" is because you convinced us not to
Feb 10, 2019 20:46:13 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: So... if you agree with me, why the argument? Yes, we're doing it entirely within the frame of the current Organic Law, passing a massive amendment to install a new constitution in its shell. Good, I guess, although this is a weird conversation.
Feb 10, 2019 22:02:41 GMT -6
Sir Alexandreu Davinescu: I am comforted by the fact that this probably won't pass referendum, but why run in circles like the above? Let's just be straightforward.
